  • Great environment, located in the middle of the city which made it convenient for people to travel around looking for food. Price wise are affordable, a great choices of local delicacies from entree to dessert. If you aren't satisfy you can take a short walk around the food court for more cafes & restaurants.
  • Very nice upgraded toilets. Impressed by 2 special parking lots for OKU located near entrance.
  • Lucky to get 2 stars, this place really needs to close down. Bad food and prices and attitude. Find any other hawker centre in Penang and that place will be better
  • A great hawker centre with lots of choices. The food are not the best in town but if you are visiting Penang, this is a good place to start your food journey. The ambience is good for a hawker centre (and considering the prices you pay). There is dedicated parking lot with ample space. My personal choices there are : cheechoinfun, laksa and ice kacang.
  • A food court but not the kopitiam style. And some F&B outlet. Quite variety of food. Previous ice kacang stall from the road side had moved out from the food court. The current tenant ice kacang is less good. No fresh cut fruits anymore. The fruits stall that move out to the shops facing burma road; the food is not fresh. Some hawker had moved out. Our favourite curry mee, char koay teow...also move out.
